Arrival: May 2009 Resort is about 30 minutes from the airport by taxi. smooth check in.very pleasant friendly staff, very attentive from the moment we checked in.
Clean, big nicely furnished with a nice balcony. separate small tub/big shower We like to have a fridge in room– we asked and within 5 minutes one was delivered to our room–no added charge
Restaurants and Bars:
Very good restaurant-reasonable- Pirates night was great well worth the $40 per person– tons of food–especially seafood mussels,shrimp,crab also lots of grilled meats ribs chicken steak ,desert table was fabulous-endless rum punch. the food in st maarten is on the pricey side-so this was reasonable. Tried main restaurant for dinner another night-very good food-tab = $80 us (we each had an appetizer and glass of wine). Best food daytime is served poolside or beach–about $10 us gets you a very large wrap or huge salad with chicken-food very flavorful and well woth the $$.one day we had no breakfast,early lunch of wraps at pool and it was enough to eat all day.
Clean and spacious lounging areas never felt crowded. lot of chair–beach is gorgeous white sand ,clean,crystal clear water about a half mile long
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Not much- a casino in lobby was fun at night and free drinks while you gamble just tip well. we played penny slots-lost a few dollars here and there but had free drinks all night
This is a nice destination for 4 to 5 nights max–not much to do at night-relaxing for couples-not for singles at all- island itself is poor and seems scetchy in areas. Phillipsburg had all these adds about great shopping but from what we saw just a bunch of average t-shirts/souvenirs. I was at the Westin Grand Cayman May 2008 for 6 nights and it is much better resort/more activities all the way around. 7 mile beach is best beach ive been to and it is 7 miles you can walk as far as you want. Grand Cayman is sooooo clean you can almost eat off the streets/police dont carry guns–soo safe.GO TO GRAND CAYMAN WESTIN INSTEAD OF ST MAARTEN.
